Gardiner played some AHL games this season and then played in the playoffs. Erixon will get some more AHL games in the fall with the probable lockout. Rundblad spent the year in the AHL.
Wouldn't mind having Erixon and Schultz play together on the top pairing in the AHL to begin the season, then both come up when the lockout is over (if there is a lockout) to be our 3rd pairing.

For the time being, let's say no substantial trades are made, MDZ would have to play on the right side with Staal. At some point Schultz will have to move up to the 2nd pairing because MDZ is a real liability playing the right side.
